You’ll want to look your very best on your wedding day, and your skin will play a big role in that. However, do you really need to start thinking about wedding day skin a whole six months before your big day?

Ideally, yes, because deep changes in the skin, meaning the changes that are capable of giving you the skin of your dreams versus a temporary fix, don’t happen overnight. That said, if you only have a few weeks, or even days, before your wedding, this checklist can still help you. However, for everyone else, giving your skin six months of extra attention will bring you that ravishing bridal glow that you see on all of your favourite Pinterest boards.

6 Months Before the Big Day

It may seem like you still have plenty of time before your wedding, but, trust us, the next six months will fly by. Now is the perfect time to take control of your skin and make a start on dealing with any major skin concerns.

Identify Your Main Skin Concerns

Close your eyes and imagine your ideal wedding day. What does your skin look like?

Now, make a list of everything that’s standing in your way of achieving that skin. Is it acne? Dark spots? Wrinkles? All of that and more? Don’t worry if your list looks ominous – once you have identified each individual issue, you’ll be able to make a plan to deal with them.

There are many treatment options out there, some of which we’ll be talking you through. However, if any of your skin concerns are severe, now is the time to take that list you’ve made to a reputable dermatologist.

Consider a Chemical Peel

Don’t let the name put you off – chemical peels are basically a form of exfoliation. The difference is that their effects are more intense. This makes them capable of treating everything from breakouts and dark spots to dryness and wrinkles.

Peels are available in three strengths; superficial, medium, and deep. The strength that you choose will dictate how much downtime your skin needs after your peel.

Peels work best when used as a series of treatments, but you obviously don’t want to be dealing with the above-mentioned downtime on your wedding day. So, book yourself in for monthly peels for the next five months, with your last peel two weeks before your wedding day.

Look Into a Course of Laser Treatments to Clear Acne and Unwanted Hairs

Regular peels are great for beating breakouts, but if you really want to banish your acne, a course of laser treatments will work wonders. While you’ll notice some results after your first treatment, two or three sessions are needed for maximum benefits. Start now and you’ll have a beautifully clear complexion just in time for your wedding.

Some Of The Largest Changes Ever

So the fallout from 2020’s pandemic scare has changed the economy of 2021, and the intrigues of 2021 are definitely going to reverberate throughout 2022. How you travel, where you spend your honeymoon, what venues will allow what sort of wedding parties, which provinces and countries are more or less free—all these things are going to carry over into 2022.

Marriage is pretty important, and it’s kind of a backbone for society. There’s an argument to be made that marriage actually outranks political issues. Without the nuclear family, it’s pretty hard for a society to develop in a way which is ultimately productive.

Marriage is the core nexus point of that reality. All that to say this: your wedding is more important than many realize. Don’t stress it too much, but don’t be intimidated into having some cloistered back-room affair—unless, of course, that’s what you were going for. Then, by all means, have it in the basement.

That was a lot, and we know wedding planning isn’t always effortless. And as if that wasn’t enough, there is still more to be done.
